A man observed a woman in the grocery store with a three year old girl in her basket. As they passed the cookie section, the little girl asked for cookies and her mother told her, “No.” The little girl immediately began to whine and fuss, and the mother said quietly, “Now Monica, we just have half of the aisles left to go through – don’t be
upset. It won’t be long now.”
Soon, they came to the candy aisle and the little girl began to shout for candy. When told she couldn’t have any, she began to cry. The mother said, “There, there, Monica, don’t cry – only two more aisles to go and then we’ll be checking out.”
When they got to the checkout stand, the little girl immediately began to clamor for gum and burst into a terrible tantrum upon discovering there’d be no gum purchased. The mother said serenely, “Monica, we’ll be through this check out stand in 5 minutes and then you can go home and have a nice nap.”
The man followed them out to the parking lot and stopped the woman to compliment her. “I couldn’t help noticing how patient you were with little Monica,” he began. The mother replied, “I’m Monica – my little girl’s name is Tammy.”November 23, 2010 11:23 pm at 11:23 pm #1201419d aMember

A man was speeding down the highway, feeling secure in a gaggle of cars all traveling at the same speed. However, as they passed a speed trap, he got nailed with an infrared speed detector and was pulled over.
The officer handed him the citation, received his signature and was about to walk away when the man asked, “Officer, I know I was speeding, but I don’t think it’s fair – there were plenty of other cars around me who were going just as fast, so why did *I* get the ticket?”
“Ever go fishing?” the policeman suddenly asked the man.
“Ummm, yeah…” the startled man replied.
The officer grinned and added, “Ever catch *all* the fish?”November 23, 2010 11:33 pm at 11:33 pm #1201421
A man decided that he was going to ride a 10-speed bike from Phoenix to Flagstaff. He got as far as Black Canyon City before the mountains just became too much and he could go no farther.
He stuck his thumb out, but after 3 hours hadn’t gotten a single person to stop. Finally, a guy in a Corvette pulled over and offered him a ride. Of course, the bike wouldn’t fit in the car. The owner of the Corvette found a piece of rope lying by the highway and tied it to his bumper. He tied the other end to the bike and told the man that if he was going too fast, to honk the horn on his bike and that he would slow down.
Everything went fine for the first 30 miles. Suddenly, another Corvette blew past them. Not to be outdone, the Corvette pulling the bike took off after the other. A short distance down the road, the Corvettes, both going well over 120 mph, blew through a speed trap.
The police officer noted the speeds from his radar gun and radioed to the other officer that he had two Corvettes headed his way at over 120 mph. He then relayed, “…and you’re not going to believe this, but there’s guy on a 10 speed bike honking to pass.”November 23, 2010 11:36 pm at 11:36 pm #1201422
The phone rings at KGB headquarters.
“Hello, is this KGB?”
“Yes. What do you want?”
“I’m calling to report my neighbor Yankel Rabinovitz as an enemy of the State.
He is hiding undeclared diamonds in his firewood.”
“This will be noted.”
Next day, the KGB goons come over to Rabinovitz’s house. They search the shed where the firewood is kept, break every piece of wood, find no diamonds, swear at Yankel Rabinovitz and leave.
The phone rings at Rabinovitz’s house. “Hello, Yankel! Did the KGB come?”
“Did they chop your firewood?”
“Yes, they did.”
“Okay, now it’s your turn to call. I need my vegetable patch plowed.”November 23, 2010 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm #1201423
A fire started on some grasslands near a farm. The county fire department was
called to put out the fire. The fire was more than the county fire department
could handle. Someone suggested that a nearby volunteer bunch be called.
Despite some doubt that the volunteer outfit would be of any assistance,
the call was made.
The volunteers arrived in a dilapidated old fire truck. They rumbled straight
towards the fire, drove right into the middle of the flames and stopped!
The firemen jumped off the truck and frantically started spraying water in
all directions. Soon they had snuffed out the center of the fire, breaking the
blaze into two easily-controlled parts.
Watching all this, the farmer was so impressed with the volunteer fire department’s
work and was so grateful that his farm had been spared, that right there on the
spot he presented the volunteers with a check for $1,000. A local news reporter
asked the volunteer fire captain what the department planned to do with the funds.
“That ought to be obvious, ” he responded, wiping ashes off his coat. “The first thing we’re gonna do is get the brakes fixed on our fire truck!”November 24, 2010 12:03 am at 12:03 am #1201424
ACTUAL ANNOUNCEMENTS MADE BY IN-FLIGHT ATTENDANTS….
BEFORE TAKE OFF:
“To operate your seat belt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. Actually, it works just like every other seat belt on the planet. If you don’t know how to operate one, you probably shouldn’t be out in public unsupervised.”
“In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, or someone who is acting like a small child, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with two such persons, decide now which one you love more.”
SHORTLY BEFORE ARRIVAL:
“Weather at our destination is 50 degrees, with some broken clouds; but they’ll try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank you, and remember, nobody loves you, or your travel money, more than this airline.”
ON THE GROUND, AFTER AN EXCEEDINGLY BUMPY LANDING:
“Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain in your seats until Captain Crash’ and the Crew have brought the aircraft to a screeching halt up against the gate. And, once the tire smoke has cleared and the warning bells are silenced, we’ll open the door and you can pick your way through the wreckage to the terminal.”
“We’d like to thank you folks for flying with us today. And, the next time you get the insane urge to go blasting through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope you’ll think of us here at this airline.”November 24, 2010 12:58 am at 12:58 am #1201425d aMember

Copy of a leaked memo from El Al to JetBlue employees
> Subject: Unique aspects of a flight to Israel
> Dear JetBlue employees:
> Welcome to the El Al family – or as we say in Hebrew, Bruchim haba’im!
> We’re so excited about our new partnership. We here at Israel’s
> national air carrier are eager to make this transition as smooth as
> possible and thought it would be helpful to sensitize you to some of
> the cultural differences you may encounter with your new customer
> Security lines: Passengers are instructed to arrive at the airport
> six hours before a flight. This may seem excessive, but Israel’s
> crack security service demands it on the theory that no terrorist
> would be dedicated enough to spend six hours in a crowd of Jews.
> Kidding! The six-hour time period allows our security team to ask
> essential questions of our passengers, including “Do you have family
> in Israel? Where do they live? What is the purpose of your visit?” It
> also allows time for the person behind you in line to ask the very
> same questions, in even greater detail. What you might call
> “intrusive rudeness” is merely what our people call “Jewish
> Luggage: We allow each passenger to stow luggage weighing up to 6,000
> pounds. Again, this may seem generous by American standards, but it
> is in response to our passengers’ need to bring books for their
> cousins in B’nei Brak, appliances for their neighbors’ in-laws in
> French Hill, and industrial-size boxes of M & M’s for Israeli
> Boarding: We board our flights for maximum efficiency, in the
> following order: Families with young children, families with six or
> more young children, families with eight or more young children,
> individuals with physical limitations, individuals with aches and
> pains that may be something but they won’t know until they see a
> specialist, individuals who cut in line.
> Carry-on luggage: You may not think a double stroller, six Borsalino
> hat boxes, and a Samsung flat-screen television are unable to fit in an
> overhead bin, but please don’t underestimate our passengers. During
> this portion of the flight it might be a good idea for flight
> attendants to retreat to the galley and have a beer. Or two.
> Safety instructions: Hebrew is written from right to left. Similarly,
> in order to accommodate our passengers’ unique sensibility, our
> instructions are delivered backward. When we say, “Please do NOT stow
> items under the seat in front of you,” our passengers think, “I’ll
> damn well stow my items anywhere I want to,” before stowing them
> under the seat. When we say, “Please move freely about the cabin,”
> our passengers respond, “If they think I am budging from this seat,
> they have another think coming.” It works like a charm.
> In-flight behavior: At some point during the lengthy overseas flight,
> bearded men will crowd the aisle, wrapped in leather straps and white
> shawls. Do not be alarmed! They will not ask you to join them!
> Food service: As a Jewish airline, we serve clientele with unique
> dietary needs. Our choices include kosher, glatt kosher, kosher
> dairy, kosher meat, kosher pareve, glatt kosher dairy, gluten-free
> kosher meat, lactose-free kosher with nuts, lactose-free kosher
> without nuts, low-salt kosher pareve, high-salt gluten-free kosher
> meat, and “just bring me a box of cereal and some milk.” Remain calm
> and do not reach for the emergency chute.
> Landing: Passengers will often burst into applause when the plane
> touches down in Israel. This is because a) they are deeply moved by
> the thought of arriving in the Land of their Ancestors; b) they are
> still surprised, even after 60 years, that a Jew can safely pilot an
> We hope you find these tips useful as you welcome El Al passengers

“But why, Mom? I don’t want to go.”
“Give me two reasons why you don’t want to go.”
“Well, the kids hate me for one, and the teachers hate me, too!”
“Oh, that’s no reason not to go to school. Come on now and get ready.”

Oprah shrugged her shoulders and replied, ‘I could throw ten $100 bills out
of the window and make ten people very happy.
Michelle added, ‘That being the case, I could throw one hundred $10 bills
out of the window and make a hundred people very happy..

I heard this joke from a shiur by Rabbi Tatz that I downloaded. It’s possible you’ve heard it, but here goes.
There were 2 women living in a shtetel who each had a daughter in shidduchim. There were no bochrim in town, so what did they do? They imported 2 bochrim from a yeshiva. The day came for the bochrim to arrive. They both went to the train station, and there’s only one bochur standing on the tarmac. So of course, they each want the bachur for their own daughter. They argued back and forth. Finally, they decided to go to the town rav. They brought the bochur in and explained the story. The rav said: I have a great idea. We’ll cut the bochur in half, so both daughters can get married. One woman protested: no we cant cut him in half. The other exclaimed: yeah, cut him in half, that’s only fair.The Rav said:we have found the mother-in-law !!!!December 2, 2010 4:54 pm at 4:54 pm #1201440

that reminds me of another spoof of a torah story: There is a story (which I think is from Chazal if I’m not mistaken, please someone correct me if I’m wrong) that there were 2 brothers who owned adjacent fields. One was poor and had a large family, the other was rich and had no family.
One day the rich brother decided that being that his brother has more mouths to feed he needs more. So at harvest time he went in the middle of the night (so as not to embarras his poor brother) and took some of his own produce and brought it to his brothers field. The poor brother had similar feelings. He said I have been benched with a large family but my brother has not been. Let him at least have some extra produce to somewhat make up for what he’s lacking. In the middle of the night he went and brought some of his own produce to his brother’s field.
This went on for years until one time they met each other while carrying the goods. They each realized what the other had been doing and embraced each other with immense joy and love. On that spot where they embraced, the Bais HaMikdosh would later be built.
Same 2 brothers one rich with no family, one poor with large family. Only in this story the poor one decided that since he has so many mouths to feed he deserves more than his brother, so he went nightly to his brother’s field and stole some produce. The rich brother similarly said – my brother doesn’t deserve a large family AND lots of produce; if I don’t have a family at least let me get some extra produce to make up for it. He too went nightly to steal some produce from his brother.
This went on for years until one time they met each other while carrying the goods. They each realized what the other had been doing and they attacked and killed each other. On that very spot, the Israeli Knesset would later be built.December 2, 2010 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #1201442

Personally, I wasn’t aware that this poster was part of our family. But then, you weren’t aware of some of my family members either. LINK What kind of brothers are we if we don’t even know the same relatives? And how comoe I wasn’t invited to the party? I assume it’s tonight- I’ll be there.

I assumed Chevy had told you about the party so I didn’t think of inviting you, sorry. Looking forward to seeing you there tonight (Wednesday Zos Chanuka). But you are correct that we should be better brothers and get together more often in real life and not just in the CR.
You didn’t miss it. Its Wednesday night at Chevy’s house.December 8, 2010 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm #1201458
